YouGene is an easy-to-use Genetic Brain Profiling (GBP) tool for HR success

YouGene specializes in using Genetic Brain Organization Profiling to accurately predict preferred occupational behavior of individuals in either an existing role or a potential new appointment. Companies are continuously faced with management related decisions concerning strategy to improve productivity, procurement, contingency planning, promotion training & development.

YouGene is a tool that specializes in using Genetic Profiling to predetermine what the true scores of a person on a psycho-metric assessment should be. For this purpose, YouGene also makes a distinction between genetic and functional assessments. The Genetic Brain Organisational Prole of an individual determines how the candidate will prefer to function, under both normal and stressful situations.

YouGene is the only tool in the world that assesses all five modalities (brain, hand, eye, ear and foot) to create a comprehensive GBP based on physical dominance. The test is completely physiological, making it effective across the world as it does not rely on IQ or level of education. It is NOT a preference or personality test, it is a genetic profile that is more accurate than both. YouGene generates a full GBP following a quick 5-minute online Q & A session.
